Warehouse Management System

Warehouses have been an integral part of the Supply Chain for any industry. The goods entering the warehouse, storing the products at the right place for optimum operations, managing the shelf life, dispatching the products and other micro processes form the overall warehouse operation. Managing the warehouses efficiently and increase the productivity of manpower lead to smooth internal operations as well as overall cost saving and reductions in wastage.

Process Bottleneck

Warehouse management if done manually leads to various problems:

  • Identification and tracking of each SKU is extremely difficult and time consuming. Also the manual process of cycle counting and stock reconciliation is tedious, time consuming and prone to human errors.
  • Following Inventory Management principles like FIFO, JIT etc is extremely difficult and hence it is common to face problems like stock outs leading to business loss or wastage of products due to obsolescence
  • Proper MIS reports will not be available in required timeframe leading to wrong decision making.
  • You may end up using more manpower than actually required.
  • May need much large space than required. Real Estate costs are one of the highest cost for any business.
  • All above issues will have severe financial implications on the organization.
